It’s a new year, and a lot of us are choosing to embrace new habits and actions that will guarantee success in 2023. However, it’s hard to make progress without living in reality. So, in order to optimize the energy of a new year, we have compiled an overview of how each zodiac sign can get real, face reality, and finally get down to achieving success this new year.
Aries, you already know that you are a self-starter, but you aren’t good at follow-through. You have the momentum to take action, but you have this habit of having multiple projects strewn about all because you don’t use your Martian energy and drive to keep yourself on the straight and narrow. Get real with yourself about your impulsivity and how it can lead to you not being the boss that you can be all because you lack follow through.
Taurus, while you are very good at laying down foundations, you can be stuck in a rut. There’s a stubbornness about you that really keeps you from reaching your potential. This is especially the case when any type of change agent, be it a person, place, or thing offers you a perspective that you just don’t want to consider. It’s important that you get real with yourself about your tendency to stick to what is familiar to your detriment. This stubbornness ultimately leads to you missing out on great opportunities simply because you just don’t want to change.
Gemini, you are great at multitasking. However, it is true that you are the jack of all trades and the master of none. Because you’ve got your hand in so many pots, this flightiness leads to you being overwhelmed and pulled to your limit. While you know a whole lot about a lot of things, you never get around to actually maximizing your potential because you’re spreading your energy too thin. It’s important that you get real about maximizing your energy so that it works in your favor.
Cancer, you can always be depended upon to be an emotional reservoir for everyone. However, sometimes your emotionalism can get you into a lot of trouble. This is especially the case when you use your emotional nature to hold onto the past or to manipulate others to get what you want. It is important for you to get real about how you allow your emotions to cloud your judgment. Doing so will allow you to be able to get to the bottom of those emotionally charged actions that can possibly derail you.
Leo, you have a great fiery nature that knows how to demand the spotlight when necessary. However, your ego can get you into a lot of trouble and keep you from obtaining the admiration that you desire. While this may be a hard pill to swallow for you, sometimes you can be quite haughty and selfish which can lead to you centering yourself In a way that actually pushes people away instead of bringing them into the warmth of your light. Getting clear about how you allow your ego to get the best of you is vital in helping you achieve the success that you desire.
Virgo, you are the grounded, orderly earth sign that is always seeking self-improvement which is quite commendable. However, your critical nature can put you on the path to perfection that neither you nor anyone else will ever be able to reach. Sometimes, this fixation on perfection can actually keep you in a state of dissatisfaction that limits your progress. You may want to get real with yourself about how being hypercritical works against you instead of giving you the practical advantages that you desire.
Libra, your desire for peace, balance, and harmony enables you to maintain relationships and achieve the equilibrium you desire for yourself and others. However, your indecisiveness and need to be accepted can lead to you compromising yourself for others. It is important for you to get real with yourself about how you avoid making decisions because you don’t want to cause conflict and how this can lead to you being dishonest and insincere not only with others but also with yourself. It’s hard to make progress when you don’t know what you want for yourself and when you are making decisions solely based on pleasing others.
Scorpio, you have a keen, deep ability to heal and transform yourself and offer this energy to others. However, your propensity to get caught up in revenge and wallowing in the darkness can really hold you back. You are here to progress through transforming yourself, but this can’t happen if you’re not willing to let go of what you once were to ultimately become the highest version of yourself. You may want to sincerely consider analyzing how your preoccupation with emotional hurts, trauma, and revenge keeps you from achieving the progressive transformation that is your birthright.
Sagittarius, your Jupiter rulership graces you with optimism, faith, and hope that keeps you moving forward and always expecting the best. However, you may want to consider how sometimes you have the tendency to take your natural luck for granted. Sometimes, because you know things are going to turn out for the best, maybe you don’t put in as much effort as you should to maintain connections. You may even seek an “out” because you don’t want to be tied down to anything. Getting clear about how you use your expansive energy to avoid responsibility and accountability could be of benefit to you.
Capricorn, of all the signs of the zodiac, you are often the most prepared to see things for what they are even if they’re pretty bleak. This gives you an advantage when it comes to rectifying circumstances that aren’t working in your life. However, in an effort to plan your life, you can be a control freak. You may want to seriously analyze how you use control, particularly through your power and prestige, to get the results that you want.
Aquarius, your ability to offer a progressive perspective is much needed as you are often light years ahead of everyone else when it comes to understanding. However, given that you are a fixed sign, you may want to consider whether your progressive perspectives can be applied in a way that leads to something concrete instead of you using your energy to cause chaos. This requires a reality check to see if how you move actually creates something that actually moves yourself and humanity forward or whether it simply leaves behind a lot of confusion that doesn’t help anyone progress…including yourself.
Pisces, a reality check is good for you. Since you are the planet that rules the dream world, you can often get caught in your own reveries that are not grounded in anything real. You have great potential to make something magical in this reality, but if you never put your spiritual, dreamy energy to practical use, it just goes to waste. It’s like the artist who only thinks of painting but never does. It’s the musician that has a song in their head but never actually picks up a musical instrument to play. It’s like always having to go to sleep to experience a dream life instead of getting up and actually making this life the dream that you desire. Of all the signs, you may really want to give yourself a reality check about how you’re letting life pass you by due to your inability to see your life for what it is.
Hopefully, this overview provides a much-needed reality check for all of us so that we can get real and take action to optimize our astrological energies to the fullest.
